Disclaimer: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek. I don't own anything, yadda yadda.

AN: Quick background. So we (the players in the quest) had just started prototyping our first Ambassador class ship, when the dice gods destroyed the Enterprise B. So we managed to sweet talk our GMs to let us double-build the Ambassador prototype, with the second one slated to become the Enterprise C. Naturally, it's launch is not a quite affair, and this takes place at the end of 2321.Q4, right before sh*t hits the fan...

Contains some cameos from TOS characters, a subtle reference to young!Picard, a brief meetup of the Tenipuri Data-pair expies...

Recently found that I had several of these omake posts that I'd forgotten to crosspost to dreamwidth.

Disclaimer: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek. I don't own anything, yadda yadda.

AN: Featuring the Kaidoh-expie finally graduating, and a prelude to the launch of our long awaited, quest-designed science ship. Also, yes, a subtle HL-expie. Takes place in 2324.Q4.M2.

快穿独宠:男主,下个世界约么 (6/10...not sure if want to keep)

Unexplained quicktrans, fulling wish. MC has tiresomely low EQ, nearly emotionally stunted; seems to be always freaking surprised and unresponsive when the ML hits on her. A little too...傻白甜. Also an unequal love, since it seems like MC is slow to fall for ML each world even having memories, while ML always immediately falls for her at first sight even without memories.

Also, just putting this here: 关羽身高九尺是多高? -- In other words, if the story is fantasy "ancient china", your stereotypical 七尺男儿 can range from anywhere between 5.3-7.2 ft.

Also, also, I hate it when even the author can't decide what color "青" is, and keeps using it differently even within the same story!

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek.

Finally, 2321.Q3 rolled around in-game, which is when Picard made his first attempt at applying for Starfleet Academy. TNG implies that applications happen once a year. Picard was successful in his second attempt, which was 2322, and became a cadet for the 2323 school-year.

Boothby is the canonical groundskeeper for Starfleet Academy who’s been there forever even Picard was at the academy.

Andrea Brand is another canon character taken from TNG.

I’m leaving it up in the air for now whether Mr. Andrew is in fact, the future Ian Andrew Troi. I’ve always felt it made more sense if he’d taken Lwaxanna Troi’s surname rather than the other way around. Ms. Zaheva and Ms. Hayes may or may not be canon characters. It would be a little too much coincidence if they all were, honestly. But I'm just leaving some room open for future stories.

Been binging on Star Trek again. It's like the fandom I keep coming back to more than any other, I think. So might as well throw together another resource post.

First of all, I blame the relapse into the ST fandom on the Star Trek Continues fan series project. They did a really good job on this series, and did manage to capture a lot of the elements I liked about TOS. The two part finale is also pretty good, with great callbacks to the official pilot and the Romulan Commander, even if I agree with some fans about the overuse and then fridging of the McKenna OC.

That said, let's get into the fics. Previous rec posts: Jan 2017, Mar 2004 A-L, M-Z

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek.

Inspired by the recent name vote (where we named our shiny new Enterprise-C!), and the fact that there are indeed canonical Starfleet ships bearing the name USS Equicon and USS Da-Teplan. I thought they sounded rather Gaeni and Qloathi (both OC species), respectively. Also, the canon Equicon is itself named after a series of fan conventions, so it’s a double reference!

So I finally got the owl griffin mount last night. Yep, after the money made from Halloween, I went ahead and splurged the 250 gold. In packets of 50g per map. It was like paying mortgage.

I'll need to level it up now. I already have the mastery points saved up. So it's just a matter of doing XP.

I'll probably just do map completion that I need to do on all my characters anyway for their class spec collection. That should be more than enough.

No comments about the Mountgate rage going on in reddit/forums. I didn't bother buying the Halloween skins and I didn't bother with the new random mount skins. Unlike the default glider skin, I'm fine with the default mount skin. *shrug*

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek.

This plot bunny bit out of the blue. It's a direct sequel to The Definition of Life. Basically, the in-game reward for the previous omake was to have Mipek and Yanag assigned to the USS Lightning, which is running the experimental testbed for the isolinear computer system before we can roll that out to the fleet. (And as a result, Lightning gets a +1 science stat out of it too.)

Then, I looked over the Q2 logs for the Lightning, and lo and behold, they had a mission to the computer-phobic Arcadian Empire. And so, this fic happened.

Also, I guess I'm starting to fill out the non-Seigaku expies. Though at this point, I'm just using the Tenipuri characters as the basis for coming up with names and rough job/skill profiles. Characterization is not going to be the same since they're not all high school tennis players.

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek.

Just to say this right off the bat, I wasn’t really aiming for suspenseful court drama for this omake, more fanservice-dressed soapboxing. That said, it also isn't intended to be an in depth essay to defend AI rights. I’m sure there are dissertations worth of that stuff elsewhere on the net. I structured things to be centered more around interesting cameos and the POV they might be able to offer, and what would make sense from an in-universe and in-character perspective.

To give a bit of background, Mipek was an alien probe/AI found by the USS Odyssey, and joined that ship as an observer/crew for Captain Mbeki's last year or so before he retired to go into politics. Since then, it has been living in Sol without problems for 2+ years now. So what changed to suddenly create this conflict? Well, the obvious antagonist was the Daystrom Institute and its record of problems with AI in Trek, and they just happened to have started researching the latest gen of starship computer cores as of the last research vote in-game.

I suppose, in another timeline where they actually brought up the M5 in the court case, this court drama would be an actual drama with the big reveal being DI was trying to revive the M5 program and sneak AIs into starships. And then Vice Admiral Eaton would put her foot down. Here however, they were savvy enough to cut their losses. After all, losing this one research request wouldn't hurt them as much as being kicked off their research spot would have been.

Absent that, this is mainly going to be about Mipek, and whether it gets to be treated as a sapient life form. In light of that (and previous depictions), there wasn't much room for the plot to go. So I ended up picking the fanservice soapbox route. *shrug*

As another aside, I'm proud I managed to sneak "yudan sezu ni ikou" in there for my Tezuka expy. ^_-

Foonotes:

Anthony Haftel is a canon character from TNG. Hopefully he'll learn his lesson here and not try to take away Data's kid in the future. Or maybe he'll come back later as an antagonist when we find Data. Who knows.

Areel Shaw is a canon character from TOS. I flipped a coin to see if she'd be too old to show up. But anyway, the last org chart I saw for the JAG department didn't have many high ranking spots anyway, so I guess most people there just languish at lower ranks or something...

Aaron Satie is yet another canon character from TNG. He was required reading for Picard at the Academy (and that's coming up soon too!) so he should be a famous judge around the current time.

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek.

For once, this is an omake with only canon characters, no OCs. It came about when we assigned Commodore Saavik to head a task force that got into a fight. They won (narrowly), with only 1 ship lost. Unfortunately, the destroyed ship was the flagship of the TF, the USS Kumari, and it was destroyed by a warp core breach. Meaning, everyone died on it, including our flag officer. Kinda sad, since we've sent out task forces to fight before with OCs at the head, and they all made it though. I guess Saavik has just had awful luck by the dice rolls throughout this game-quest.

Anyway, after seeing the combat results, I originally wanted to write an omake on Spock's reaction to what happened. Unfortunately, it turned out that trying to write Vulcan grief was like bashing my head against a wall, so I gave up and went for easier pickings. As it turned out, the career timeline of our current Commander of Starfleet, Sulu, jived really well with Saavik's career timeline. So, this fic happened.

Both cadet OCs are Tenipuri expies. I decided not to make it part 5 of The Academy by the Bay series since it doesn't take place in San Francisco, mostly.

Last official tour day; tomorrow we head back to the US.

This morning we hit the Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia, both museums now within walking distance of our hotel (called Sura). The palace is a little bit reminiscent of the Forbidden Palace, if only in gaudiness, though of course not nearly as big as the chinese emperor's epeen.

Lunch was at a random restaurant and not much of note. Afterwards we visited the Basilica Cistern, which was pretty cool and Moria-esque. Unfortunately my camera couldn't see a thing down there and gave up the last of its battery trying. Oh well, just as well I didn't need it anymore.

The remaining afternoon was spent at the grand bazaar. I got my Istanbul T-shirt for the collection. My mom spent the rest of our Euros on some scarves and a lamb-skin jacket. Pft.

Dinner was at this seafood place. Their grilled bass (and other fish servings) were pretty good. Comparatively, though, I'd say I've preferred the Greek restaurants to the Turkish ones (cruise excepted). Better salads and more tender meats.
